Meal Plan Monday #5- Comfort Food?

I go through these phases where I don’t want to eat anything but avocado toast. It may be one of the only true “millennial traits” I see in myself. My family, on the other hand, doesn’t love avocado toast… crazies.

The only thing to break me out of the avocado toast frenzy just might be some good ol’ comfort food. Is this comfort food? You decide.

Lasagna- of which I don’t have a recipe for. When an Italian is born, they automatically know how to make lasagna. My only word of advise when making lasagna is to only slightly brown the meat before adding it. If you fully cook it, it becomes chewy after it is baked in the oven.

Brats and caramelized onions- I love using brats as a part of my AIP/Paleo diet, because there are so many good ones that have nothing but wholesome ingredients. Check out Trader Joes for an awesome selection. When caramelizing onions, add some Guinness as your liquid.

Thai Ginger Coconut Soup– I’m making mine with shrimp instead of chicken. Sometimes I feel bad eating chicken in front of our backyard chickens.

Honey Mustard Pretzel Chicken– Ok, maybe I don’t feel THAT bad about eating chicken in front of our chickens, but this recipe just need to be tried. Roast up some carrots and you’ve got dinner. Let me know how you like this one.

Breadless French Toast and breakfast sausage- Breakfast for dinner is the best, not only because it calls for a Bloody Mary, but also because it’s a time for the kids to help me cook. They stir the batter and sometimes help me flip things in the skillet. Cooking is a life skill that I intend to teach young. You would be amazed how much your children absorb just by hanging out with you in the kitchen.

Have a beautiful week, my friends and check back next week for my next Meal Plan Monday.
